Las Vegas gunman Stephen Paddock may have been planning to strike two months earlier at the Lollapalooza festival in Chicago.
Paddock had allegedly booked two hotel rooms overlooking Lolla back in August. Lollapalooza was held from August 3 to 6 this year, and Paddock's two rooms were booked from August 1 to 6 and from August 3 to 6.
Among the 400,000 attendees at this year's Lollapalooza was former President Barack Obama's oldest daughter Malia.
Paddock had booked two rooms at the Blackstone Hotel in Chicago, across the street from Grant Park where Lollapalooza is held.
Both rooms overlooked the festival area, and Paddock would have had a similar view of the crowd as he had in Las Vegas during the Route 91 Harvest Country Music Festival.
Paddock was a no-show for the reservations.
This is the second festival Paddock is believed to have planned on targeting before carrying out the massacre in Las Vegas on Sunday. Paddock had also attempted to book rooms at the Ogden, a luxury condo tower that overlooked the Life is Beautiful festival held in Downtown Las Vegas from September 22-24.
